  3. Sun Don’t Shine reviewed in The New Yorker:

    In this wondrously accomplished and furiously expressive drama blending the moody rambles of a road movie with the tightly ratcheted criminal tension of a film noir the director Amy Seimetz, in her first feature, captures the wildly flailing energy and exhausted torpor of grinding frustration as well as the flickering grace of stifled dreams. Her protagonists, Crystal (Kate Lyn Sheil) and Leo (Kentucker Audley), are classic young lovers on the run, driving through rural Florida with a body in the trunk of their car, but violence, fear, and distrust poison their romance from the movie’s very start, and things only get worse as they head toward St. Petersburg, where Leo hopes to get help from a former girlfriend (Kit Gwin). Sheil and Audley give performances of harrowing power, their incarnations of blind tenderness and fierce desire building to outbursts of feral rage. Filming her actors with a subcutaneous intimacy and the landscape (her home turf) with a nuanced eye, Seimetz balances a meticulous attention to practical menace with the eruptive force of her characters’ inner lives; surprising voice-overs and dreamlike, hyperdetailed images plunge the story into a vortex of expressionistic subjectivity. The action concludes with one of the great last lines of recent times.

    See it Saturday at 92YTribeca, part of the La Di Da Film Festival.

    I’M TOO FRAGILE FOR THIS, episode thirteen: ”Birthday”

    37! You know what that means, right? Connor Ratliff is old enough to be President. He’ll make his case at 92YTribeca at The Unconvention on Sep 9 and the premiere of his campaign documentary on Oct 15.

  9. I was 19 when I became a GLOW girl and I remember calling my dad for his advice, and he highly encouraged me to do it. I remember him telling me that ‘20 years from now when you’ve raised your family you will one day look back and realize that you had an adventure of a lifetime.’
Village Voice catches up with GLOW girl Angelina Altishin, known as Little Egypt, to talk about the new documentary, GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, playing at 92YTribeca on Saturday. She is now a successful real estate agent and fondly looks back on her time in (and out) of the ring. She’ll be doing a Q&A at the screening with GLOW girl Gremlina and GLOW writer/referee Steve Blance.
